Posted in: Internet misinformation fans COVID vaccine hesitancy among Japanese young people See in context

The vaccines are still in emergency only list, they are not fully licensed almost anywhere including WHO. Why should young healthy people take it?

It seems this situation could be easily predicted (and was predicted) by meteorologists a few days in advance, the governments should have issued evacuation instructions. Instead of apologizing for negligence they blame the climate change.

Just make 3rd type of games, so we will have: Olympics, Paralympics and Druglympics. While the first two are basically boring pish, the third one will be smashing. Lots of world records will be broken in the first year.

Posted in: Bezos leaves enduring legacy as he steps away as Amazon CEO See in context

Amazon wiped out all the small bookstores and even towns of stores, dragged employment to worst than 3rd world conditions, and concentrated all that wealth to one person. It's the dystopian nightmare writ large

Its a bit childish to blame one man or one company. Most of us chose this type of future and paid for it.

Posted in: Asian coal plant drive threatens climate goals: report See in context

I am sure China is determined to burn all its coal as fast as possible and nothing will stop them. One thing can be done is if other countries can stop providing them with their natural resources and stop buying their products.

Posted in: Australia battles several clusters in new pandemic phase See in context

I think, at this stage, it is a bit of overreaction. Wouldn’t it be enough to vaccinate a vulnerable part of population (10%-15%) and then just relax? Why need to reach herd immunity with experimental vaccines which are approved only for emergency use? For example, UK has about 50% fully vaccinated people and covered all the vulnerable groups long time ago. And we can see that rising number of cases seems have no impact on number of deaths.

Posted in: Japanese gov't backs 4-day workweek, but experts split See in context

Funny thing is that at my current job in Japan, unlike other countries where I worked before, I can’t easily go to the office on weekends. If I do that too many times they will force me to do some extra medical checks and possibly even reduce my pay rate.

Sounds good, also I hope those who like their job will be able to work at least 5 days a week.

Posted in: No time to waste, warns Japanese climate activist See in context

She's not a scientist and has no way of assessing whether what she's told is true or not.

Exactly. We need to listen about this topic from somebody serious (like physics Nobel winner) and neutral enough to be sure he/she is not receiving profits from ‘climate catastrophe’.

Posted in: No time to waste, warns Japanese climate activist See in context

Japan was the sixth-biggest contributor to global greenhouse emissions in 2017

Maybe its the 6-th biggest, but contributes to only 3% of the emissions. The thing is, until burning is the cheapest way to produce energy, these movements will have only one result: more things will be made in China.

Posted in: American father, son to go on trial for helping Ghosn flee Japan See in context

I don’t know about internals of the Japanese penal system, but the resulting stats for Japan are very impressive compared, for example, to US: 600 in US). From this number it doesn’t look like Japanese system have a significant trend to convict innocent people. In this context 99% conviction rate seems a good thing since less innocent people get charged at the first place.

For the November target to be reachable, they need about 2 million shots per day. There is no evidence of that happening. or even promises or hopes.

If you do the math, the current pace is sufficient to reach the November goal. Of course, we need to exclude minors and some outliers.

Posted in: Ghosn's lawyers say client happy after days of French probe See in context

He told the AP he had much more confidence in the French legal system than the Japanese system he had fled.

We all know that France has a more humane and equal legal system and not based on racial profile and xenophobia unlike some other countries.

Really? I think its more realistic that French are easier for Ghosn to buy a good deal, especially if he is in a safe place anyways. They probably already agreed on the final number and now doing they dance to make it look like a serious process.

It is not WHO’s role to criticize anyone or anything, but to provide information and to make reliable predictions and risk assessment. And if China is not trustworthy and known for its coverups in the past, it should be a factor in the analysis.

Posted in: How can we stop the next pandemic? Here's what a WHO panel recommends See in context

The WHO did and does have the power to speak out publicly to the world and the world listens.

Exactly! And WHO failed badly in that and continue to fail, and nobody resigned or took responsibility. This behavior strongly indicates corruption. WHO should be heavily reorganized.
